Yep...happened again...same car too.

So we've had the Prizm back for about 2 weeks now, I've been meaning to post about it but haven't got any good pics to show yet so I haven't done so. Anyway, I was working yesterday, coming back from my first delivery, I pulled onto the street beside work and parked on the side. There was a red Silverado in front of me and some other car in front of him. I backed up a bit to give him some extra room to pull out, so he had 5 feet or so plus the space between him and the other car. I lock up and start to walk to the shop. I notice he backing up and for some reason I felt compelled to watch...only to find the f@#king retard backing into my front bumper!!! He's about to pull away when I yell at him that he just hit my car. He stoped and gets out and we inspect the damage.

I'm pissed but do my best to remain civil. He claimed his didn't see me but..uh...that's what f@#king mirrors are for. Plus he didn't need to back that far up in the first place. Then he says "Oh well, you're illegally parked/ (NO parking on that side between 8am and 5 pm, it's like 4:50pm and there was no place to park) I point out that he is too and he shuts up about that. I look at the front bumper and to my relief I guess, there only a small chip in the paint on the bumper...no dent. His trailer hitch hit it but it had some stupid plastic end cap that is what scratched the bumper and broke the bottom of it.

It's not worth dealing with the insurance company, right after getting the last accident settled, so I let him go. What had me so pissed is that 1.) It happened at all. 2.) It happened, like the last accident, because of the other driver's like of the ability to use is damn brain. 3.) He tried briefly to blame me.

I'm rip $h! pissed so when I get in the car and screech the tires and move it to a now open spot in front of work, which I don't think is really any safer but whatever. I slam the door and throw the bag down, and my boss asks me why I'm mad and I tell him. Then he has the nerve to tell me I shouldn't be mad. I'm like, f@#k you, I'll be made if I feel like it. I don't say this but I do say that's I am f@#king pissed because I just got the last accident settled and we haven't had the car back for a full 2 weeks yet! :censored:

Oh, I was quite angry for the rest of the night let me tell you. Moral of the Story: people are f@#king stupid and I hope several red Silverados in the area spontaneously combust, killing all inside, and take 20 or so Civics with them.

Are talking a scratch like this...

...because that's been like that for months now. You learn to live with it until you get the time/money/materials to fix it.

I would've probably made an attempt to scratch his tailgate in a similar fashion to even it out. But yeah...

  • GMC Upsizes the Acadia for 2024; New 2.5L Turbo-4

    GMC caused a stir in 2016 when it downsized the Acadia in 2017 from its previous near-Yukon length. That downsize brought the Acadia down to be inline in size with the contemporary Jeep Grand Cherokee.  In the years since, the Grand Cherokee has grown and GMC is matching that with the 2024 GMC Acadia. Inches matter in this class and in that the Acadia gains (back) 10.6 inches in length and 3.2 inches in height. That equates to 80% more space behind the third row and 36% more space behind th


    Cadillac Refreshes the CT5 with an Updated Look for 2025

    Today at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Cadillac unveiled the refreshed Cadillac CT5 sedan.  CT5 retail sales have been on an upswing of late, increasing over 35%.  In a time when sedan sales are stagnating or disappearing entirely, Cadillac's positive numbers have given hope that the luxury sedan market isn't quite dead yet. The refresh of the CT5 begins with the exterior. A new larger, bolder grille is flanked by new vertically stacked headlamps and Cadillac's sign


    Ford updates the 2024 F-150 with More Standard Power, More Hybrid Production, and a New Tailgate

    Tonight at an event ahead of the Detroit Auto Show, Ford unveiled the updated 2024 Ford F-150. Starting in 2024, the F-150 will drop the base 3.3-liter naturally aspirated V6 in favor of the familiar 2.7-liter Ecoboost V6. This increases standard power across the line by 25 horsepower and a whopping 135 lb-ft of torque.  Additionally, citing a 28% increase in hybrid F-150 sales, Ford is increasing production of the hybrid powertrain to meet this demand. Ford expects to double the mix of hybrid a
